Miami-based development company Metronomic Inc., led by Ricky Trinidad, broke ground last Thursday for the new, mixed-use office, retail and hotel project on Grand Avenue in Coconut Grove. The groundbreaking ceremony for Metronomic Place was attended by commissioner Xavier Suarez and is set to spearhead the long-awaited revival of this corridor.
The five-story building will have about 5,000 square-feet of Class A office space, 3,200 square-feet of ground floor retail space, and a 44-key boutique hotel. The lobby and hotel interior was developed by local firm One Design Build. Designer Hugo Mijares combined metal, concrete, wood and other raw elements to create a modern industrial design with Old American style. It will also feature an activated “green” rooftop with a pool and garden area that echo the natural aura Coconut Grove in known for. Metronomic Place has an estimated completion date of Winter 2019.
Ricky Trinidad, President of Metronomic, Inc., is a developer and resident himself in West Coconut Grove, and has deep roots to the community. He hopes the project will enhance the vitality of Coconut Grove’s commercial and entertainment core.
He also just closed on a 7,200 square-foot site at 3110 Commodore Plaza called Commodore Place. The boutique hotel will offer loft-style, short-term suites with attractive amenities, a rooftop pool and garden deck area, and a two-story duplexed retail venue on the first floor.
Miguel Pinto of Apex Capital Realty brokered the deal and represented Metronomic Inc. Like Ricky, Miguel is focused on working on projects and deals that enhance communities and positively impact the commercial real estate industry.
As part of Metronomic’s larger plan to revitalize Grand Avenue, they also have over ten new construction projects in the works in Coconut Grove. This includes a large-scale comprehensive development of multiple properties of mixed-income, affordable housing, retail, office, park plazas, and sustainable living concepts.
